The login page for the OSU Access wireless network has returned. Information about that can be found here.

OSU Access is an unsecured/unencrypted wireless network. OSU IT staff recommend you use the Eduroam or OSU Secure wireless networks.


What is available?

OSU used to give out a disc with software that is handy to have and use for classes and work. This disc was produced by the OSU Computer Helpdesk, but having many left over we have decided to forgo the CD this year and have everything web based. If you would still like a CD, or a flash drive with this software, you can always come to the walk-up helpdesk kiosk computer. At the kiosk, you can get the software on your USB flash drive or a CD.


What OSU provides...
